Long

One more breakout trade.

BITSTAMP:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / Dollar
I decided to pick up another position around $422 since this is beginning to look like another bull flag . The breakout will probably bring us to around 490 before the real retrace, as I mentioned in my last idea.

After this follows through, watch volume on the retrace to see if it's a reversal or a bear trap. If the price bumps up against 480-500 and starts making lower highs with lower volume , get ready for another sell-off. Otherwise, it could just be a bear trap. In that case, look for another breakout.
Hi Moontrader, has this broken out to the downside or are you optimistic?

It's not invalidated until it breaks below the horizontal line I drew below the triangle. If you're trading with me, I would put your stops there.

Overall, though, yes. I'm still optimistic. If it breaks to the downside, then I will look for another long entry after that.

Looks like it broke below that line. Is the next stop 390 IYO? 380?

Thanks.

Actually, it was a successful trade for me. I sold at 475 before it started going down. You have to use your own judgment on these things. But yes, I think 380 support will hold.
